Last Wednesday evening I travelled into the deepest darkest Black Country for an Evening with Miranda Dickinson hosted by Blackheath library.
There was a good attendance for Miranda’s talk on how she got into writing, published and her latest novel Take a Look at Me Now. Miranda gave us an insight to her background as a writer and her ambitions to have copies of her own books in her home town library, Kingswinford, which she has now achieved.
I asked MIranda if she had much input into her cover designs, she explained she did for her first novel Fairytale of New York but that her publishers did change the name for the novel, as she’d hoped to call it Coffee at Kowalski’s.
I love these events, it’s a bit surreal finally meeting someone you’ve had interaction with via social media but it was a lovely, well organised evening. And Miranda is just really lovely too, signing my book and giving me a hug!
Here’s the blurb for Miranda’s latest novel Take a Look at Me Now
The paperback has a gorgeous velvety feel to it! I’m reading this at the moment so review will follow asap.
How far would you go to make a new start? Heart-warming and romantic, Take a Look at Me Now will make you laugh, cry and cheer Nell on from start to finish.
What a difference a day makes…
Nell Sullivan has always been known as ‘Miss Five-Year Plan’. But when she finds herself jobless and newly single on the same day, Nell decides it is time to stop planning and start taking chances.
Nell blows her redundancy cheque on a trip of lifetime to a place where anything is possible – San Francisco. There she meets a host of colourful characters, including the intriguing and gorgeous Max. Very soon the city begins to feel like Nell’s second home.
But when it’s time to return to London, will she leave the ‘new Nell’ behind? And can the magic of San Francisco continue to sparkle thousands of miles away?
